Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
This proposed rule will enhance access to recreational opportunities for New York City residents at the Parks Department’s recreation centers and tennis courts. The rule will establish a new membership fee category for recreation centers, with a reduced membership fee for adults with a valid Municipal ID Card and a reduced tennis permit fee for adults with a valid Municipal ID Card.
The proposed rule will:
• Allow adults between 25 and 61 years of age with a valid Municipal ID Card to purchase or renew a recreation center membership for $90 at recreation centers without an indoor pool, or $135 at recreation centers with an indoor pool. The current fees are $100 and $150, respectively; and
• Allow adults between 25 and 61 years of age with a valid Municipal ID Card to purchase a tennis permit for $180. The current fee is $200.
The Parks Department’s authority for these rules is found in section 533 of the New York City Charter.
